good call but I still don't think electrically he can run with the other guys I mentioned. Don't get me wrong he is great but not with the others. Jack covered up a lot of Jorma's lack of ability and played more the roll of the soloist in that band. Doesn't take away from how great he is I just think the other guys I mentioned had more.

Here's someone I forgot. Elvin Bishop has some licks and is underrated if you ask me. The man did replace Garcia for one Dead show or part of the show anyways. 6-8-1969 Fillmore West in case anyone is interested.

have you ever listened to
˝phosphorescent rat˝
the mighty power trio w/ bob steeler on drums, who made such albums as ˝america´s choice˝, ˝yellow fever˝, ˝hoppkorv˝ ??? probably not. electric, powerful, almost atonal sound of hot tuna shook the earth in mid 70s, generating more cosmic power and energy than any rock band ever. unique, sonic, electric, hard rock sound

jorma is the master guitarist, electric and acoustic
its just a question of his own preference and reasoning - he´s taking it easy now, playing mostly acoustic. that way he´s gonna be around to teach his grandchildren the magic

in gun lingo: jorma is 44mag, jerry and cipollina were .44mag, while all the others listed were/are in .38sp/9mm - .45 caliber category

just my opinion
